Chester FC vs FC Halifax Town - Match Hypothesis

Chester FC take on FC Halifax Town tonight, and everyone is super excited about it.

With The Blues having won five on the bounce, manager Neil Young is expected to stick with the formula that has brought him success so far.

"I've just been pulling names out of a hat mostly," confessed Young.  "Wound up with Levi Mackin at left-back a couple of times already this season.  Pulled it off though, didn't he?"

One name that won't be in Young's flatcap tonight is Michael Taylor, with the centre back having been farmed out on loan to AFC Fylde.  This comes as no surprise as, earlier in the week, Young had told Chronicle biro-wafter The Tall Peacock that he couldn't bring lads who hadn't been playing regularly straight into his first team, as the club has "got to win games of football."

"Let them go and get their fitness up some place where it won't affect our results," continued Young, maybe.  "Fylde or somewhere like that."

On the flip side, midfielder Scott Brown is set to join the Blues on a short term deal, having recently been released by Macclesfield.

"I figured if we brought a Macc fella in, we could use him as bait in trying to sign Ben Mills off 'em," revealed Young.  "Not sure whether the 'look, we've bought you a friend' approach will work, but I'm willing to trying anything.  The boy's on fire."

More statistically-minded Blues may be interested to know that Scott Brown will be the first midfielder named Brown to play for the club since Alex Brown last season. 

Former Chester skipper Phil Bolland looks set to turn out for the opposition and is likely to receive a mixed reception, having spoilt his reputation by bizarrely pandering to Wrexham fans upon signing for the laughable Racecourse outfit in 2008.  Bolland commented that Chester fans display less "passion" than Wrexham fans, cleverly throwing out a buzzword popular amongst football fans, whilst managing to say nothing of any value.

A win for Chester will not be enough to propel them to the top of the table, as Brackley have already won six on the trot, but with a far superior goals difference.

Yes, Brackley.

And Guiseley, too.

World's gone mad.
